I do not practise Kendo but love this article. It is the essence of most martial arts.

This makes more sense than our "modern" black and white view of genders. It gives a more complete picture of our world (yes, they do live amongst us). More inclusive and more tolerant. And he was comfortable with who he was.

The beauty that is found in the sharing spirit. This post is not about finger pointing, pitting one group against another or us vs them. As said, it is about the spirit of sharing. It is also poignant :(

I remember seeing that episode. The man was being ostracized for not wanting to make a killing because of the enormity of what he had envisioned could do for the farming industry. Beautiful ending thank to his angel investor.

He works on the land and with his hands. He understands honest living. I would like to see more people like himself creating wealth. He will know how to put wealth to good use.

agree with u. people who build wealth with their hands know how difficult life is. they appreciate society and will help to return to build up society.

True! This is a very good title!
Not always.

Simple, practical and loaded with common sense. And powerful. Make America Great Forever. I am not using the phrase "Make America Great Again". Cause it is great already. It just needs to stay that way :D . The current challenges we are seeing, they are just like little speed bums along the democratic path. The work is never completed. We are all a work in progress. And so is the country. My America :love: .

:cool:

And that is why, despite all the speedbumps, after 35 years in the US and now 35 years in Singapore, I still am only a PR here.

Understood :cool: . My daughters were educated on how democracy work. At elementary school level. They learnt how an individual citizen, like themselves, can get a bill / measure passed. If they see something that needs to be fixed in their living environment. An onerous process, no less, and most are not inclined that way. But the point is, it is possible for ordinary citizens to get involved and get their political voices heard.

It is a culture and system that empowers you at a young age. Rather than teaching our young to be fearful of those who hold power over us. Now, that is what I call beautiful. America The Beautiful.
